policy wise? >> the obama administration has never had a foreign policy. bill, he's only had this assortment of confused, naive initiatives poisoned by ideology, deformed by politic, driven by politics, and the only thing these initiatives in the foreign affairs realm have had in common has been their failure. if you look from benghazi to beijing, in this afro-asian realm of crisis, there is not one troubled country, not one, not russia, not china, certainly not iran, afghanistan, pakistan, certainly not israel, not one country in which relations are healthier or more constructive than under george w. bush, and that was a pretty low standard. >> bill: what do you say, colonel hunt? >> i think the specificity of the policy when you look at libya in which we wanted a lower american profile with the weakest profile we've had security since 1979 first ambassador we had killed failed. in afghanistan issues we have people training, killing us. that is not -- and the surge was supposed to crush the taliban. the commander on the ground reports says the taliban is back. he talked abou
creation. 4 million jobs created after the first year of the obama administration, legitimate issue to say he is making progress. on foreign policy, i think it should be an issue of what we just discussed. but i think it will be laid in the context of the president not only having stopped the war in iraq, gone and violated pakistani air space, which wasn't done before, and getting al qaeda in pakistan, that's bin laden and putting it in the context of 12 embassies attacked in the 8 years of the bush administration and losing a u.s. diplomat in pakistan and our president recognizing that we have to shift our focus, not just in the global war on terror, but to dhiena. i think this may take a bit of luster off, but overall, i think it's quite a good step that he has taken for america, securing our peace and prosperity. >> eric: that's the final word. >> thank you for having me. >> eric: thank you both. >> jamie: major development in the showdown over iran's nuclear program. the economic sanctions are stinging hard with the israeli finance minister, saying iran's economy is paying a heavy pric
's running, what year they're running, you become the tool of a political despot. the obama administration will feed you a narrative, which works on these people, and have you vote. >> bill: the media is a sellout media, and exactly what they did in 2007 and '08 they are doing here. could you imagine "60 minutes, they ought to be embarrassed. mr. president, you promised to cut the deficit in half in your first term, $6 trillion in debt, you said bush was unpatriotic and irresponsible for four years. explain. they don't ask fundamentals. fewer americans are working in spite of your caveats, mr. president. explain. explain all of the -- never does he get asked simple questions. >> well, the media complicit here and the collusion, which is what it is, is obvious. when univision does -- credit to them -- for asking tougher questions, never getting an answer, but asking tougher questions of this president, that's amazing. i mean, they've abrogated their responsibilities as media and the american people, what we hear in this howard stern audio, is the result -- it's partially the result of media
of relief. not just in the obama administration but many who said, look, the deadline is next spring, next summer. there isn't going to be a possible israeli military strike before the election. but iran is doubling down. just today prime minister ahmadinejad back in tehran gave a press conference. and he said this, brooke, i'll quote him "we are not people to retreat on the nuclear issue. if somebody thinks they can pressure iran, they are certainly wrong and must correct their behavior." at least in terms of words, which actions are more important than words, but in terms of words not backing down at all. from is going to be the crucial question for the next president whether it's barack obama or mitt romney. >> absolutely. erin burnett, thank you very much. >> good to see you, brooke. >> good to see you. see you tonight
the administration noted that the 33,000 american troops that had been sent in there some two years ago, a little bit less than two years ago as part of the surge authored by president obama had come out. the president never ceases to point out on the campaign trail and elsewhere, that he has ended the war in iraq, has ended the war in afghanistan, two years hence u.s. combat troops are expected to be pulled out of a afghanistan in 2014. so obviously this presents some problems as well as the grim facts on the ground. with these horrific green-on-blue attacks. >> how much does the president anticipate the war in afghanistan will play into the debates on wednesday? >> it's a mixed bag at this point. the president as i pointed out, frequently pointing out that he has a plan to bring american troop combat troops out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. he's talked about his success in bringing american combat troops out of iraq. he's talking about some of the successes up until recently. in endorsing the arab spring in libya and tunisia to a certain extent in egypt. but certainly the situation in libya ri
